Coravin. Powerful and concentrated. Will open, decant and be patient next time. Always a great bargain. — 4 days ago

Sea Smoke

Southing Estate Vineyard Pinot Noir 2013

Red and black fruit, full on initial taste, but mid-palate fades too soon. From Coravin, feels like it needs some time to open up. Later.....opened up nicely in the glass. Phew. — 2 months ago

Rudius

Panek Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Revisited, sans-Coravin. This time with 3 hour decant.

Much improved but still felt overall lacking given the site of harvest.

Skippy, you crushed this example. Sorry to read that it didn't quite float your boat. I wonder if you shud try the 14's. They are exceptional. But I am surprised with showing... 😏

Try the 13 Rudius Farella, besides the Knockmore which you can't find anymore, its much more drinkable than any other Rudius

Just grabbed from the Great Falls Wine Outlet and decided to coravin a bit. Deep garnet with a touch of ruby. Layered nose with tons of dark cherries, purple flower petals, roses and earthiness. Solid acidity and medium tannins (5/10). Light plus to medium bodied and layered with strawberries, cherries and lavender. Dry with a medium plus finish. Would be nice to see how it develops with some air and age. Drink till 2021. — 20 days ago

#howellmountain #napaterroirisreal #petitesirah #dunn this is a big wine and I completely recommend decanting it first. Can definitely age. A Coravin won't give you a true idea of this wine, it needs to be uncorked. — 2 months ago

Château Larose-Trintaudon

Superieur Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Had a glass at Grace in Portland, ME (former church, on coravin). Absolutely delicious. Very smooth; doesn't linger. Expensive, but worth it. — a month ago

Caymus Vineyards

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

5th Coravin pour since 7/25/15, still great, starting to mature. Deep ruby red with compkex aromas of black fruit, herbs and vanilla spice. The wine opened with fresh sweet ripe dark fruit, blackberry and black cherry, with oak, leather and cacao. Well balanced, tannins continuing to develop nicely, slightly savory, finishing with sweet oak notes. My notes from my five pours using Coravin were very consistent, but now noticing the wine maturing. It really
works! Works! Check back in 6months, 1/3 bottle left.
